re: Nokia Lumia 920: Close, But No Cigar
I was going to say one button to apps... then Letter search, I type in the first letter, and boom I find it within seconds.
" All the more so since Windows Phone 8, unlike Android and iOS, has no way to search for locally installed apps. That means get used to a lot of scrolling. "
It still amazed me that critics who list things that arent available that are simply things they arent smart enough to look for. Maybe they think they are too smart to even ask... because hey - that might make them look as stupid as they really are.
And yes the purpose of having a large scrolling homepage is to make finding the apps you need easy to access and press unlike IOS or Android where its on one of these 5 pages and somewhere in the bottom left corner.. but where ( then try to look smart as your fumbling around like an idiot looking). So as you can see, I think I disagree on that argument.
120,000 apps and counting - You havent listed the ones you are missing, probably because MS has them. Another bad argument.
The ONLY good arguement is the browser as I would have loved flash. Also, if they are going to tie in WP8 with W8 with the same user account, they need to have a favorites page or something linked to that brower. (This is something they are missing on the tablet mode of Win8).
Now please, can we get a critic who actually uses a product for longer than 1-2 weeks on occasion. This is getting ridiculous.
